Maybe. Could be a teacher.

Oh good, It's a pop quiz. Lets just google it and see what comes up. Ok, google says there are 52,400 results, wow.

Answer can be found in the International code council, chapter 36, branch circuit voltage limitations. The answer is 80%. That would be my guess. Am I right?

80 % would be the max for any circuit not just an appliance motor
